Tomato Sauce for Pasta

3 T. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 tsp. salt
pinch of red pepper flakes
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped or chiffonade
1 large can (28 oz.) plum tomatoes

Squeeze juice out of tomatoes, but save the juice in case you have to add some back to the sauce if it cooks down too dry.

Put olive oil in large skillet and add garlic; saute just briefly and add the squeezed tomatoes, salt and red pepper flakes. Cook til bubbly, adding some juice from the tomatoes if it becomes too dry. Add the fresh basil just before removing from heat. Toss with cooked pasta of choice.
